Poetry is what gets lost in translation.-Robert Frost

So since I'm not finished The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egyptians to Quantum Cryptography by Simon Singh, and I'm also currently reading Lost by Gregory Maguire, I thought that today I would mention some of my favourite poets/poems. Here ya go:

Robert Frost: Acquainted with the Night

Lord Alfred Tennyson: Crossing the Bar

Edna St. Vincent Millay: What Lips my Lips have Kissed

Dylan Thomas: In my Craft or Sullen Art

Gregory Orr: Insomnia Song

William Falconer: The Shipwreck

Heinrich Heine: Die Lorelei (The Lorelei, or The Siren)

Omar Khayyam: The Rubaiyat (Edward FitzGerald translations)
